Harman’s Coup String Pulling Confirmed

Remember how quiet Harriet Harman was on the Hoon/Hewitt attempted coup day?  Guido has been scanning the footage and column inches from that cold day in January and the only person who came to Gordon’s defence any later was brave David Miliband. Note her absence from the Guy News round up of that day. The rest of the cabinet hardly gave a ringing endorsement either though:

Harman hosted a New Years Eve goose roast with the other plotters at her country pile just six days before the attempted coup. Again this raises questions about why she didn’t run herself in May. It seems she was sensible enough not to wield the knife herself, but she clearly had her eye on the crown. Harman’s reputation as the mother of the party, uniting factions and holding things together has taken a massive hit with this news. Red Ed should watch his back – there have been stirrings while the leader has been away on paternity leave. Has Harriet been hosting any dinner parties this week?

GuidoFawkes Quote of the Day

Andrew Neil on the dying Dead Tree Press

“I read more bloggers now than mainstream columnists, because they’ve got more interesting things to say. Too many columnists today make you think, ‘Yeah, I think you’ve said that 10 times before and I’ve just noticed your column has not go a single fact in it’”.
